Friday Links -- Drug Edition

Sure, the cash may be good, and the hours great...but what are the benefits like? I'm thinking vacation time, health, 401K -- and with such easy access to meth -- a good dental plan. Non-existent? Well then, I'll keep my cubicle and my $32,000/yr. Shit, that salary is even more depressing when I write it down..

Time for some drug arrests...
At the conclusion of a nine- month heroin task force investigation that led to more than 100 federal agents and Baltimore police officers fanning out Thursday morning and arresting 11 people, authorities made a most unusual find: a woman's purse made entirely of $100 bills
Excellent work. However, the bad news is, driving in this morning at 8:00 (not only a non-busy time for the crews, but it seems to be considered nap time for junkies/customers, causing the dealers to shut down 'till early afternoon) I was still being hailed down by the young corner boys in my neighborhood. Am I suggesting that the Drug War is futile? Never.
Baltimore State's Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy argued that the investigation showed why an emphasis on drug interdiction -- and not just on the illegal use of guns -- was needed to lower the city's violent crime rate.
I say it all the time, but it's worth repeating the obvious; wouldn't it just be easier if we took the drugs out of the hands of criminals and thugs, by legitimizing them? No of course not, because that would just make things...worse. Gotcha

How does Radley spot these so fast?
Wearing masks and carrying rifles, Annapolis police officers attempting to execute a search warrant broke down the door of an apartment, set off a percussion grenade that released smoke and a flash of light and noise, and kicked one occupant in the groin.
In case you hadn't guessed, it was the wrong apartment. And they didn't find shit in the actual apartment that the warrant was for; that is once they figured out where the apartment was.

And some lighter fare....Jesus loves me yes he does, for my Bible's filled with coke.
